BRESCIA 2-0 UDINESE
A Filippini 29
Former Milan midfielder Federico Giunti scored with a fantastic 35yd free kick,
the ball sailed over the wall before wickedly dipping into the net. Antonio
Filippini's goal was equally spectacular, a stunning long range drive which
Turci couldn't keep out despite getting a touch.
Very impressive result given Brescia were without Baggio and Guardiola.

CHIEVO 2-0 PERUGIA
Corini 27 (Penalty)
Paris foolishly attempted to tackle Cassato as he ran into the box, he barely
made contact but Cassato made sure he went down and Corini converted.
Corini's wicked free kick was cleared but Manfredini latched onto the ball
and shot at goal, the ball struck D'Anna and standing virtually on the
goal-line he couldn't miss.

feet to deny Laursen. Despite going a man down Milan managed to
find lots of space in attack without really troubling Frey.
Attendance : 25,000
Assist : Serginho
Red Card : Umit 66 (Milan)
PIACENZA 1-2 ATALANTA
Hubner 8 Doni 59, 82
Springsteen scored from the spot after being knocked down in the box by
Carrera. Doni ran across the box, skipped a tackle and smashed the ball
in off the post. He added another few billion lira to his transfer fee by heading
in Orlandini's free kick.
Doni is almost certain to leave Atalanta when the transfer market re-opens.
Juve and Lazio are favourites for his signature. He will be Italy's secret
weapon during the World Cup.
Attendance : 9,000
Assists : Hubner, Orlandini
Red Cards : Di Francesco 43 (Piacenza), Rossini 79 (Atalanta)
TORINO 5-1 VERONA
Ferrante 71, 88 Mutu 11
Mutu made a run into the box from the right wing, worked himself an
opening and smacked the ball inside the post via a slight deflection off
Fattori. Spectacularly poor defending gifted Torino the equaliser. Oddo
headed a corner towards his own goal, Vergassola's shot was superbly
cleared off the line by defender Cannavaro's one handed save but Ferrante
lashed the ball into an empty net. Verona then collapsed, a hat-trick of
headers sending Torino racing into the lead. Diliso's sloppy back pass
allowed Lucarelli in for Toro's fifth.
Attendance : 15,044
Assists : Delli Carri, Maspero
Red Card : Gonnella 42 (Verona)
VENEZIA 1-1 LECCE
Di Napoli 58 Konnan 71

LAZIO 1-0 JUVENTUS
Mendieta was once again on the bench and once again Lazio won the match.
Inzaghi headed against the post from Liverani's free kick. Buffon came out
of his box and headed out Tacchinardi's sloppy back pass, the ball dropped at
Liverani's feet and he sent an awesome lob straight into the net. Crespo shot
against the post. Trezeguet blew Juve's best chance when he volleyed into
the ground from close range.
